Photinia serrulata 'Red Robin’ is a hardy evergreen which offers a varying pallet of foliage colour throughout the seasons. The new leaves which emerge in spring and summer are shaded a brilliant fire-like red lighting up as the sun hits it before maturing to a glossy dark-green. In Spring the foliage is also accompanied by clusters of white flowers giving it an exquisite ornamental value.

‘Red Robin’ is a particularly hardy and disease resistant variety and has thus been awarded the Royal horticultural Society’s AGM award in recognition of this. Growing in a vigorous bushy fashion this plant can be used as a living screening offering a refreshing sense of privacy and escape from the outside.

Primrose instant climbing plants are provided fully covering the trellis for instant impact when added to your garden. Just drop them into place either in the ground or in a container and prepare to marvel at your living screening. Incorporate into your garden design to cleverly compartmentalise your outdoor space creating areas for dining, walkways or even hide an unsightly feature.
